Interesting concept. Some lazy jokes.

Danny Wallace has an affable air about him. That makes this listenable. Interesting concept of not asking the guests anything about themselves and having no idea who is talking.
Some casual lazy jokes about other nations let it down. Pity that it had to go there.

Perfect for a family drive (Teenagers+)

Very funny and different.

Will keep everyone entertained on a family road trip but the occasional 12+ content.

Avoid

This is one of the most irritating audio recordings I've ever listened to. Danny Wallace has created stories and adventures I've found wonderful. This, however, is drivel.

In this particular episode, Danny tells a story of someone in close proximity making a "ba bee ba" noise, which irritates him. Unfortunately, with no self awareness, Danny parrots "BAH BEEE BAH" over and over and over in loud annoyance. I'm sure the audience members comprehend this the first loud abruption.


By the tenth time or so, skipping on 30 seconds to more "BAH BEE BAHS" it's puerile. When he's on his third guest and he's still making the noise I started giving consideration of ending my audible subscription. This goes beyond disappointing. I've listened to more interesting children on YouTube. What a waste of energy.

Note: Rich Fuller's in this episode. I had hesitation with listening because of his tendency to be obnoxiously over the top and grating. Danny takes gold for that here.

Hmmm.

Parts of this were quite irritating, like the chapter where Danny talks about the fact that his wife always leaves the toilet door unlocked when she goes to the toilet. He then proceeds to have a drawn out conversation about why or why not this might be acceptable and the various reasons for and against. One guest in particular patronizingly womansplains that he is a `wuss`, and gives the overall message that he needs to man up etc. etc. and is stupid for even questioning why his wife doesn`t lock the toilet door, all while laughing in what appears to be a very affected tone. I`ve actually listened to almost all of Danny`s books and have always enjoyed his stuff, especially his last book. While you could never call his stuff high-brow, it is usually good light entertainment which keeps you distracted enough on a boring day. Parts of this however, just sounded like teenagers in the pub.

Pointless

Unless you are a fan of the self absorbed Wallace then really do not bother
